Spinal Decompression Therapy in Chicago IL, Slipped and Herniated Disc Specialist
Chicago spinal decompression is a new form of therapy used by the Peak Performance team. It helps to relieve pain that has been caused by the compression of a vertebral disc that adds pressure to a nerve. As a non-surgical and non-drug therapy, it assists patients in dealing with back pain issues. Sadly, lower back pain and disc problems have turned into a major problem for many over the years, globally. The number of chronic back pain sufferers rises each day.
Spinal decompression therapy decreases pain and discomfort by easing pressure on your spinal disc and never. Many patients opt for this treatment, as going the surgery route can be scary, as the spinal cord is exposed. Choosing this spinal decompression treatment can offer the same results, without the risk.
What is a Herniated Disc?
A herniated disk is also known as a slipped, ruptured, or bulging disk. It’s one of the most common causes of neck, back, and leg pain. You have a series of bones (vertebrae) in your spine, stretching from the base of your skull to your tailbone. Between your vertebrae are round cushions called disks. The disks act as buffers between your bones, allowing you to bend and move with ease.
During your herniated disc treatment, we will assess your pain, muscle reflexes, sensation, and muscle strength to determine the severity and plan your treatment going forward. Our herniated disc specialist tailor the treatment process to what you need so you have the best chance at a speedy recovery.
How Long Does Slipped Disc Treatment Take?
The average amount of time it takes for a herniated disk to heal is four to six weeks, but it can get better within a few days depending on how severe the herniation was and where it occurred. Until that time, your slipped disc specialist will suggest your treatment plan along with plenty of rest.
